I had this issue on my old machine but i dont remember what fixed it. Try telling it a bedtime story? Or just put it in standby mode when you arent using it.
Nothing to see here.

Right click your desktop and go to Properties. Screen Saver > Click the Power. You should see some options to either let your computer Hibernate or not.
